I'd like that too, but I can't seem to fit it into the tools.
It would mean that we'd need an extra waffle column and the "Done" wouldn't be used.

Given the short development cycles that we have,
I'm willing to accept that sometimes we might get a duplicate issue.

Hopefully, the milestone "next-release" should show this info.

I agree.  I propose:
(bug and discussion omitted for clarity)

[pool]               - unsorted issues
[status:backlog]     - selected for this release
[status:in-progress] - works in progress
[status:review]      - waiting for review
[done]               - merged into master

Issues selected for the next release

	[pool] -> [backlog] (moved by Reviewer)

Developer starts work on issue.
They assign themself to the issue.

	[backlog] -> [in-progress] (moved by wafflebot, or Reviewer)
